So when I came across this lamp on craftster, I knew I wanted to do the same.
Fast forward months later and I still hadn't begun. I had collected a lampshade, but alas I couldn't find the perfect one used in the inspiration lamp, so I made do. I carefully peeled the paper top from the board and decoupaged it onto the shade. I robbed a black feather boa from an old piece of lingerie, added some ribbon and a dollar store bird and called it done.
But it sat unused until the end of September when DH called me out on my laziness and said I would never finish it. That lit a fire under my butt and I quickly found a lamp at Goodwill that I could robbed the light kit from. DH then promptly attached the light kit, added a red bulb and hung it for me in the dining room.
And without further ado, here is my Ouija Lamp.
I do admit that I think the original lamp looks better, but I am happy with the end result. I have delighted in my BIL's freaking out, and the admiring glances of friends who appreciate my spooky decor.
